Could any breeders who ship cats abroad give me any advice or tips on successful/least stressful/reasonably priced ways to ship our cats from UK to Oz?

I know there are many companies whom ive already had a look at some, but was wondering for some pesonal recommendations and some helpful insider tips.

TIA XX

We honestly do not have any breeders here who are posting regularly. Hopefully, you've checked the regulations and quarantine rules for bringing a cat into Australia. How many cats are you looking at? I don't know where the quarantine takes place (UK or OZ). How are you getting to Australia? I'd probably want the cats with me at that time. I'm sure there are logistics to work out -- I just don't know them. It is a LONG trip and quite stressful on humans as well as cats. You might want to contact some UK breeders and ask if they've ever shipped cats to Oz.

If you book in advance, they can fly on the same flights as you (depending on which countries you're stopping over at).
Australian quarantine is quite strict, but you can do some of the steps before you leave. See here: http://www.agriculture.gov.au/cats-dogs

I don't see that getting them on the same flight is that important as they'll have to go to Melbourne to quarantine for 10 days while we're heading to Queensland.

There are numerous pet carriers and was just hoping for some personal recommendations from people who've used them.

Thanks all x
